Against my better judgement I am going to give this blogging gig a go. I am a New Zealand born theoretical physicist currently living in Australia. If I say "we" I probably mean "we New Zealanders".
I'll rant about whatever comes to mind, but currently I am interested in learning more about policy responses to global warming and high oil prices. I'll also have a few words to say about nuclear issues.
The title comes from a Louis Macneice poem Star-Gazer which gives some feeling for why a person becomes a physicist.
